Looking for fun math centers and time and money worksheets? This set is filled with hands-on math activities to practice coin recognition, value of money and telling time.
This set is for beginners in time and money. In time we cover telling time to the hour, with a couple of activities asking kids to sort between clocks that show the hour and half hour.
In money the children are just learning early coin recognition and value for US coins.
Spin and Cover Money Values
This simple money activity is all about coin recognition and value. Spin and cover the correct value of that coin.
Build and Ice Cream Sundae Price
Ice cream is always a big hit with my kiddos, and in this activity they get to build their own sundae, calculating their price one coin at a time.
Piggy Bank Coin Sort
This is coin recognition and sorting for beginners. Which coins look alike, and what is their value? For fantastic fine motor practice, add actual piggy banks on top of the cards to sort coins into.
What Can I Buy? Money & Shopping
When we interviewed teachers to find out what money skills they teach in kindergarten, they were all over the spectrum. This activity is for those who are going a bit more in depth and advanced. Children can actually start pretending to buy things with their money, using their coins one item at a time.
What is the Change? Coin Activity
One of the things children will learn with money is how to add and subtract coins. This activity mostly covers subtraction, with coins, under 10. There are also a few cards to skip count by 5’s, 10s, and even 25 for kiddos that want to use the more valuable coins.
Which Cost’s More Cupcakes
Kids LOVE cupcakes, and we’re using them here to do some comparing between coins. These cards are for beginners again, comparing value between single coins, and then very basic combinations like a dime with a penny vs. a single dime.
This set is essentially a combo of 2 mini sets, time and money. The next 6 centers are for working on time.
Telling Time Centers
Hour or Half Hour Sort – Clocks
Have you ever played the game Aligator, Aligator, What time is it? This cute sorting activity is a play off of that idea where children simply sort between clocks that show the hour or half hour.
Fill in the Clocks – Time Telling
Children who might not be quite ready to tell time can still play with clocks. In this activity they are filling in the missing clock numbers, which requires them to be able to count to 12. If they are ready, they can also tell the time of the clock they just finished.
Playdough Hands Clock
We LOVE these cute playdough clocks. Kids can make the hands as fancy or simple as they like. Pick a card and make that time.
It’s Time to Take Turns Clock
This cute clock activity also reinforces the social emotional skill of taking turns. The set comes with multiple schedule cards for the children to practice placing the animals on the correct hour for their turn.
Tell me the Time Cards
Manipulatives can completely change up your skills practice. For this activity, we simply added fun toy numbers to the cards for the children to get a little more hands-on with their digital and analog time telling skills.
Busy Bug Time Telling Clock
Bugs are a favorite around here, and this bug themed clock is adorable. Children will get to move the hands around bug’s tummy to make the time listed on the cards.
This set also includes fun money worksheets with all kinds of activities to practice coin recognition, both heads and tails. It covers the value of coins from pennies to quarters.
Here’s a quick peek at some of the money worksheets in this set.
Time worksheets also come with this set. They cover reading clocks and drawing the hands on clocks when given the digital time.
